No Maniac, No Problem: Why ‘Halloween III’ Is Great – ScreenHub Entertainment

1982 saw the release of one of the most reviled films of its time, the highly anticipated third entry in John Carpenter’s Halloween series. Halloween III: Season of the Witch had nothing to do with series’ villain, Michael Myers, and left audiences feeling betrayed and tricked.

‘Dune’ Spoiler-Free Movie Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

Denis Villeneuve has been consistently knocking it out of the park with his whole career. He made his big budget debut with the tense crime drama Prisoners and moved on to release Enemy in the same year.

Blade Runner 2049 was a big test because the preexisting fanbase for Blade Runner … Continue reading ‘Dune’ Spoiler-Free Movie Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

Sweet & Sour Nightmares: Race and Exploitation in the Original ‘Candyman’

Horror stories began as fables meant to warn us of life’s dangers, or a means to confront that which scares us most. As a modern fable, 1992’s Candyman is among the most effective.

“The Suicide Squad” Spoiler-Free Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

Going into the cinema to see James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad I was fairly sceptical. The trailers were pretty good but considering the massive disappointment which was Suicide Squad, I was ready to be disappointed. That being said, the sequel was 2-and-a-bit hours of absolutely ridiculous fun. That being said, I have never been in a cinema with such sporadic laughing – at some point, … Continue reading “The Suicide Squad” Spoiler-Free Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

Any Revival of ‘Friday the 13th’ Should Focus On The Tragedy of Jason Voorhees – ScreenHub Entertainment

Even the most charitable opinions of the Friday the 13th series write it off as an enjoyable camp with little substance. I don’t fault the series for this as Friday the 13th never aspired to be anything more than straightforward genre fun. In many ways, it has already exceeded that goal, still going strong after 40 years even with its relatively simple formula. I’m a … Continue reading Any Revival of ‘Friday the 13th’ Should Focus On The Tragedy of Jason Voorhees – ScreenHub Entertainment
